Welcome to the Fremont-Winema National Forest
The Fremont-Winema National Forest occupies the heart of southern central Oregon, from the eastern slope of the Cascade Range to the rugged desert landscape of Oregon's Outback.
The ecosystem ranges from towering snow-capped peaks to wide-open sage basins. Pivotal to the economy and communities of south central Oregon, this 2.3 million acre forest is known for its many recreational opportunities, scenic vistas and wild places where visitors can still find solitude.
